Grenville Stud is proud to be standing two quality stallions for the 2023 breeding season. Progeny of each have proven to be very popular in the sales ring, following on with exceptional results on the race track.
Stratosphere has made an incredible start to his career at stud with a number of his progeny selling in excess of $100,000 in the sales ring and being purchased by some of the best judges in the Country. Stratosphere’s progeny averaged over $53k (in excess of 13 times his service fee) at the 2023 Tasmanian Yearling Sale with a 100% clearance rate demonstrating the huge demand for this Sire’s progeny.
On the track Stratosphere’s progeny have dominated the 2YO ranks in Tasmania this season. Stratosphere has sired a phenomenal 7 individual winners and 3 stakes performers from just 16 runners in his first crop headlined by the unbeaten Group 3 winning Greatham Boy.
Stratosphere’s progeny are intelligent horses, being very easy to educate and thus enabling them to get to the races as 2YO’s and win lucrative TasBred bonuses. (Offered on every 2YO Maiden race in Tasmania.)
Stratosphere had blistering speed himself and he is stamping his progeny with this early speed and precocity and upgrading those mares mated with him. It is very exciting to see just how good this stallion could be.
Zululand has had an exceptional year on the track this season with his 3YO progeny earning in excess of $500k from just 18 runners. His headliners in Muscle Up and Zulu Angel both look to have very exciting futures ahead.
Zululand himself is an exceptional type and was a $1.5m yearling. He is doing a superb job in the sales ring with his progeny selling up to $100,000, providing a great return for breeders.
Grenville have carefully considered the current economic climate and also feedback from breeders when setting our service fees to ensure that breeders can achieve great results when utilising our stallions whether it be in the sales ring or on the race track.
